Before I started writing erotica romance, I spent three years learning the craft of song lyric writing. Although it was an enjoyable experience and I learned a lot from some great Nashville songwriters, I knew I would never become a great lyric writer. But that's OK. Learning the craft and spending many hours in the creative process was very fullfilling.
As I look back on that experience now as a published author, I respect the songwriting process even more when I listen to the radio. I think that I am a much better erotica romance writer than a lyric writer, but even if my books don't become popular with readers, I will still always enjoy the creativity of the writing.process.
